Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies

IMG_6278

Remember that one time I forgot that Leftovers Club posts were due? I have no idea how this week snuck up on me. It has been a busy few weeks I suppose. Anyway, after attempting several recipes to no avail, I came up with these cookies. They are soft and fluffy chocolate chip cookies stuffed with mini marshmallows. I had to make several batches before I just got them right, but even the wonky ones where the marshmallow evaporated in the oven still tasted amazing.

IMG_6270Recipe: Chocolate Chip Marshmallow Cookies

Makes 14 cookies

What You Need:

  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows, frozen
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 2 & 1/2 cups all-purpose
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsaltd butter, melted
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

What To Do:

1. Mix together the melted butter, sugar, and eggs in a large bowl or electric mixer.

2. Add in all other ingredients except for the marshmallows.

3. Chill dough in the fridge for at least an hour.

4. Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

5. Flatten one tablespoon of the dough onto a flat surface. Place 3 to 4 mini marshmallows on top of the dough and then cover them with another tablespoon of dough. Shape into a ball and place onto a greased cookie sheet.

6. Place entire cookie sheet in the freezer for at least 15 minutes. (Here’s Why: If you do not chill the dough balls, the edges will brown too much and the bottoms will darken. I learned from experience. Also, if the marshmallows are not completely cold, they evaporate into the dough when baking!)

7. Bake for 12 minutes.

8. Let the cookies cool for 5 to 10 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to finish cooling completely.
